In this part of the world, the word surrogacy is alien to many people who do not understands the term. This fearless women despite the Nigerian culture and traditions yet chosen to make impact in their own way. Welcome to the world of surrogacy: women who carry another woman’s baby in the womb for nine months.

According to a video by BBC Pidgin, the women narrated how the go about the practise. Revealing that it is what they do for a living. Helping other women who are unable to give birth, by carry their unborn child for them. Watch video below;

The women went further to share that, there was no amount of money that could make up for such a delicate practice, because the process and stress that comes along with it makes the whole thing priceless.

“I can carry pregnancy for anybody, as long as the person will be happy at last.” – Mayowa surrogate mother for a couple looking for a child for the past 17 years tell BBC Pidgin.

Most surrogate mothers usually carry pregnancy for couples who can’t carry pregnancy in their womb due to one reason or another. Mayowa say after she gives birth, the parents of the baby will compensate her, mostly with money, to show appreciation for the help she did for them.

Another Nigerian surrogate mother, Favour George, says to be a surrogate mother, they will check your health to see if you are fit, then take care of you throughout the pregnancy.

Olaronke Thaddeus that started online platform for people to connect surrogate mothers, says “surrogacy is priceless!!!” Her platform connects surrogate mothers, egg donors, sperm donors, surrogacy lawyers, agencies and fertility clinics. See reactions from Nigerians.

For many who don’t understand what surrogacy means; It is an arrangement, often supported by a legal agreement, whereby a woman (the surrogate mother) agrees to become pregnant and give birth to a child for another person(s) who is or will become the parent(s) of the child.

People may seek a surrogacy arrangement when pregnancy is medically impossible, when pregnancy risks are too dangerous for the intended mother, or when a single man or a male couple wish to have a child. Surrogacy is considered one of many assisted reproductive technologies.

Surrogacy is a big thing in other countries and popular celebrities like Kim Kardashian, Gabrielle Union used surrogacy to have their children.
